All public authorities are required to publish information about their workforce in order to demonstrate their compliance with the public sector Equality Duty. This includes information relating to employees who share protected characteristics, as defined by the Equality Act 2010. This helps us understand our workforce and identify whether it is representative of the community it serves. Also, it helps us assess how our decisions and policies effect people as an employer.
The information presented on this page includes:
• Overall workforce data relating to gender, ethnicity, age, and disability,
• Gender pay information,
• Cases disciplinary, grievance, mediation relating to gender, disability and ethnicity.
For more information on our processes and policies, see our , which sets out the council's strategy on how to proactively promote equality through its role as a service provider, community leader, and employer.
